Lucinda “Cindy” Lee Murphy, 64, Peru, Indiana, passed away on Thursday, November 14, 2019, in the comfort of her home surrounded by her loving family.

Born on December 2, 1954, in Peru, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late David E. and Joan W. Raber Snyder.  On May 16, 1987, in the Chapel of the First Baptist Church, in Peru, Indiana, she was married to David E. Murphy, and he survives.

Cindy graduated from North Miami High School in 1973 and went on to Indiana Business School, where she graduated in 1974.  She retired from Ford Meter Box in January 2019.  Well known for her artistic abilities, she enjoyed creating beautiful hand-made items such as paintings, quilts, baskets, greeting cards, scrapbooks, scarves, hats, and other crocheted items.  She recently crocheted hats for cancer patients and donated them to the Cancer Center in Kokomo.  Over the years, Cindy operated several businesses, Cindy’s Country Baskets, Over the Moon Creations, and Stampin Up.  She enjoyed traveling and spending time crafting with her grandkids.

In addition to her husband, David E.
